How is that an epic fail? The only thing failed is the pic description. The pic itself is amazing, to say the least. Those details, those lights and shadows, heck, those sculptures look so real that they seem to pop out of the screen. Magnificent work!
Them shadows are playing games with my vision. Cant tell where is the light. So if called fail - only because of light and shadows.
The theme reminds me somewhat of Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver where you could explored ancient buildings and Rayman 3 with its colours and Guild Wars 2 when you knows very well GW1. All three elements mixed together.
